My mailbox is beginning to look like a remembrance of days past, with lots of great deals being offered by any company where I’ve bought anything in the last decade. And one of my passions used to be the full range of wonderful smelling lotions, potions, shampoos, and soaps.
Once I got pregnant with my first, I needed to rethink some of my old favorites in an effort to avoid parabens and the like. However, I still have a strong stable of favorites that bring my simple pleasure at home when the budget allows.
My love of food seems to extend into my choices of fragrances. Citrus, sugar, spice–I love them all. My go-to fragrances are Fresh’s Sugar and Jo Malone’s Nutmeg and Ginger. I love cookies and am very happy to smell like one. I love the whole Sugar product line: perfume, lotions, scrubs, and lip balms.
I love EO and use their body washes, shampoos and conditioners. I’m giving Occitane a whirl right now–their 5 Essential Oils Repairing conditioner is next on my list. They lured me in with the free hand cream sample on Facebook combined with a healthy discount on other purchases.
I’ve been a long time Kiehl’s fan and they recently sent me their holiday offer for $20 off through December 31st.. Anyone planning on shopping Kiehl’s for the holidays should let me know and I’m happy to share–you need to spend $65 to get the $20 off and they’re good in-store or online. I’m lamenting the demise of the almond scent for the body lotion but still dig the mango.
